(Auto Repair) What is it?
Well, a lot of people refer to an auto service as either a minor or major service to your vehicle, and a typical service is the changing of water, fluids, and oil, this is usually referred to as an interim service or lube service. If you travel on a lot of dirt roads it is important to replace your oil more frequently, as well as your filters as per the next point.
Changing air filters, oil filters, cabin filters, and fuel filters.
Inspecting spark plugs but not necessarily changing them. Your owner’s manual will determine the correct mileage to replace the spark plugs.
Inspecting the transmission oil and differential oil and top-up if necessary.
Inspect your wiper blades and replace them if they are worn or not cleaned properly.
Inspect all hoses and belts. These are all the water hoses to and from the radiator and the fan. Inspecting the fan belts and timing belts for wear.
Checking that all lights and indicators are in working order.
Rotating your tyres is also very important for your safety, especially when the roads are wet or slippery.
A good idea is to have a Vehicle Diagnostic done on the vehicle prior to service, as this will give the mechanic a good idea of what is wrong with the vehicle.
Inspect the front brakes and rear brakes for wear, and adjust the handbrake cable.
Take the car for a test drive to feel if the clutch and cv joints are in good working order. Inspect for any cv boot damage and no grease is going onto any of the wheels.
